Welp -- I guess I'm now tootin' from Mastodon. 👋

If you're coming from Twitter, this is where I'll post my spurious thoughts about technology, music, photography, retro computing, and who knows what else.

If that's interesting to you: hello, and looking forward to the conversation.

Like, is now a good time to mention the Texas GOP just ratified their new platform which calls for repealing the 1965 Voting Rights Act and removing all legal rights for LGBT people?

Like, deleting their legal rights to exist.

US politics 

The 2016 election caused so much damage that will carry through possibly most of my remaining adult life, it's almost unfathomable. That, combined with Republicans blocking a legitimate nominee just to fuck with everyone.

The guy lost the popular vote and appointed THREE justices. THREE.

we fucking told cis women they would be next and they didn't listen

I mean, it was no surprise that this day was coming, but I'm so fucking angry.

Beyond that, I have no words right now, only swears and tears. :-(

Now available! :mastodon:

Today has been one of _those_ days.

I wanna scream and let out my frustration. My apartment neighbors would not appreciate that, though, so... silently grinding my teeth here instead while cursing like a sailor.

Hope your has gone better than mine!

apparently my elderly neighbor has been maintaining a personal website about the history of UK photography and it is an incredible piece of work.

apparently he still uses some piece of adobe software from the 90s. there is so much care and effort here, and its such a pristine image of the early web being still updated 😭

Since I migrated I should post a new #introduction I suppose?

Hi! I'm Tam. I'm a 40 year old trans woman working in IT. I've been married to my lovely wife since 2003 and we're poly. I consider myself a Gray Ace Lesbian.

I've found my love of Star Trek again and I've been dabbling in 3d printing and some "casual cosplay" like in my avatar. I love video games, though I talk about them more than I play them.

I decided to move here in light of recent goings-on with Twitter.

Nice to meet you!

Today I will spend most of the day looking at the Event Horizon Telescope image of Sgr A*!

This is the first direct image of the emission immediately outside of our Milky Way’s central supermassive black hole!!!

#Introduction Hello everyone, I'm a biologist and in the next months I'll start a new path into planetary science, and my focus will be on astrobiology and human space exploration. I'm interested in #scicomm and #scifi, and I read heaps of Italian literature. I'll talk about #biology and #space, more or less. I've just started a blog here: noblogo.org/drawanowl where l'll write in English and Italian.

So this was fun.

Occasionally, for no good reason, your `~/Documents` folder on can be... symlinked to itself?

Which causes all sorts of wonderful fun. Drive will stop working ("can't communicate w/ helper process"). Finder may hang indefinitely when opening new windows. Your iCloud Documents folder will get renamed to include the computer name, breaking apps that depend on the name.

The fix: remove the symlink (apple.stackexchange.com/a/3710)

No idea _what_ triggered it, though.

#tooters living with fibromyalgia, how constant is your pain? I want to learn more about how long it manifests in other people. With me, it never stopped since it began - it will be 2 years in July

#boosts are really appreciated

I think the time has come to remove the #crypto donation links from our support page. We have plenty others ways for support and it’s not used that often so.. I also want to give a good example like #Wikipedia♥️

Tech FOR the planet, not AGAINST it right! 🌱
